Footloose Records of Holywell is the gift that keeps on giving.. This, their latest offering is a three track 7″ single from Wrexham / Chester’s Black Years, a band who have built up a solid reputation for polished melodic hardcore performances.
As you can see from the pic, you can get a bundle of t-shirt and single (with vinyl of your choice) all for tenner – so what you waiting for? – There’s only 30 bundles available!

The lead track Bourbon Legend kicks in musically with a fine East Bay Ray style guitar before smashing into full throatcore punk rock… ‘No future, no hope, it’s all we’ve got, it’s all we know.’ Really really good immediate, urgent and menacing.
I’d say the same for Lovers but for the chorus that goes into a bit of an emo whine, and yeah that might float your boat, but it sinks mine…
Criminals however more than makes up for it and would’ve come a close call for being the title track. Good chant-a-long song with a cool chugging riff…

Black Years wear their hearts on their tattooed sleeves…

Get it here…
